When To Get 2005 GMC Savana 1500 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2005 GMC Savana 1500, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Savana 1500 feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2005 GMC Savana 1500, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Savana 1500 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.
